Default WHAT IS THIS ABS LIGHT

I am the original owner of a 1994 ACCORD EX. It has 180,000 miles on it and today the ABS light came on for the first time. What does it mean and how can I disable it? Thanks.

That light is telling you that your anti-lock brake system is not working or is malfunctioning. Frankly I wouldn't just blow it off, I'd have it inspected soon by at least two different garages. The thought of stomping on the brakes without ABS and skidding into trouble is not appealing.

MOST LIKELY ITS BECAUSE YOU HAVE A FAULTY WHEEL SPEED SENSOR. First check your brake fluid levels to make sure their not below the min. limit. it could set off the abs light. most likely its one of those two problems....good luck!

nah - brake fluid low will turn on the "brake" indicator and only after a while will turn on ABS light

it could be wheel sensor, but could be not..

hey my car is so smart - if I lift it up in the air and try to run it - it will turn the ABS light on

so I went and plugged the computer to check the ABS code and it gave me code #xxx

and a message : WTF dude, my front wheels are running and rear wheels hold still - I'd better signal you with ABS light that something is wrong!!!

i have a 1996 accord and the only light that wont go off in my accord is the SRS. Does anyone know how i could get that to go off. I hooked it up to a machine and it didnt say anything. What could i do next?

turn the engine OFF and wait 10 seconds <--- you have to wait 10 seconds for the memory to reset.

you need SRS service connector - when you plug it to the Service check connector the one on the passenger side. Turn the ignition ON - the SRS indicator will come on for 6 seconds and go off. Then it will indicate the DTC code:

the DTC consists of a main code and a sub code and including the most recent problem up to three different mulfunctions can be indicated.

main code flashes are 1.2 seconds in duration while sub codes are short flashes of 0.3 sec. the delay between codes (main and sub is 2 seconds)

in case of intermittent failure the SRS light will indicate the DTC one time then it will stay ON

so read the code and tell me what it is
